Machakos Crowd Goes Wild Over What The Youngest MP John Mwirigi Said About Raila During Ruto's Tour

Igembe South MP John Mwirigi who came to the limelight in 2017 being elected as the youngest lawmaker at the age of 23 years has now called upon the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to retire from politics, sentiments that excited a section of Machakos residents.

Speaking in Kiatuni Market Machakos County on Wednesday December 1 during Deputy President William Ruto's Tour, Mwirigi said that it was time the ODM leader supports the junior politicians arguing that the younger leaders are energetic and have vigor to change the country.

While drumming his support for the bottom-up economic model, the now 27 year old stated that Ruto is the only presidential candidate on the bench who is able to solve the problems affecting Kenyans once he wins the presidency next year.

"As youths we must be remembered, that is why we are behind Ruto. Raila's 'vitendawili' will not take this country forward, but bottom-up model will. We urged Raila and the other older leaders to take a rest and allow youths to take over those positions," posed Mwirigi.

He further stated that Meru County and Mount Kenya Region at large were behind Ruto's presidential bid.
